Tony® Winner Daveed Diggs Boards TNT’s Snowpiercer!

Tony® winner Daveed Diggs has boarded Snowpiercer – TNT’s adaptation of Bong Joon Ho’s futuristic thriller set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe.
